Maryallan attended Border Star Grade School and Southwest High School in Kansas City, Missouri. She attended the University of Missouri for two years and was a member of the Pi Beta Phi Sorority.

After the war, Maryallan and Rich set up housekeeping in Kansas City and became parents to three boys, Ryan, Barry and Allan. The family moved to Towson, Maryland in 1959 for Rich’s career as a manufacturer representative. Maryallan became a Real Estate Agent, rising to the position of vice-president. Later, they moved to Hunt Valley, Maryland and opened a gourmet/gift shop where they created 400 Christmas gifts each year and sold them in their shop. They loved family vacations to the beach at Ocean City, Maryland each summer. When they retired, Rich and Maryallan returned to wonderful Kansas City. They made many new friends and cherished long-time friends.
